The Congressional and Business Leadership Awards are presented annually to two members of Congress and a leader from the business and government affairs community for their contributions to our nation and its young people.
Each year, the award recipients are honored during The Fund for American Studies Scholarship Dinner. Previously called the Congressional Scholarship Awards Dinner (CSAD), this annual event raises scholarship funds for outstanding college students to attend the Institute on Business and Government Affairs (IBGA), an academic internship program in Washington, D.C. sponsored by TFAS.
Since its inception in 1990, this dinner has raised more than $5 million in scholarships for over 750 students to attend the program. IBGA has become the premier training program for future leaders in business, government and politics. Through academic study, internships and panel discussions with leaders in the profession, students gain an appreciation for the essential interplay between business and government and its effect on our nation’s future.
The evening is a highlight of the summer for students, as it gives them the opportunity to meet senators, congressmen and leaders from the corporate community.
